Use Safe Surfer via secure DNS on Google Chrome

It’s easy with Safe Surfer to install an effective porn blocker for a Chrome web browser. Along with protecting your privacy, we use our behind-the-scenes technology to block porn and other harmful online content. Let's get started with installing protection.

If you are looking to protect a Chrome web browser, we recommend that you consider using one of our system-wide installation methods instead. Protection installed within the Google Chrome web browser can be turned off, and other built-in web browsers (for example, Microsoft Edge or Samsung Internet) would otherwise not be protected. Click the links below to view our installation guides for Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPod, Windows 11, and Apple Mac.

Chrome web browser installation

Click the three-dot icon at the upper-right corner of the browser window. Click the Settings menu. On the left-hand sidebar, click the “Privacy and security” menu. Click the Security menu. Click the button found next to “With (Custom)”. Right-click the text field and click the Paste option. Click outside the text box on some white space.

If the text box shows an error asking you to verify that this is a valid provider, click the textbox.

Click away from the text box.

Great work! Protection has now been installed. You can now close the Settings tab.

Visit the Safe Surfer website and check the protection bubble at the top of the page to verify that this device is protected.

To see blocking in action, try visiting This is a safe website for testing if pornographic websites are being blocked. This website should be blocked.

Protection complete

Great work! This Chrome web browser is now protected. To start monitoring protected devices, visit our easy-to-use online dashboard.

If you have any other Chromebook devices you would like to protect, simply start again from the top of the guide. If you would like to protect a different kind of device, visit our Guides page.
